Disney's Epcot Adventures: KP vs. Agent P
Disney's Epcot Adventures: KP vs. Agent P - How does the new Epcot adventure compare?
Some of you may be familiar with the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure. Some of you may be familiar with the current Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure. For those readers who haven’t experienced either, I’ll give you a brief description. Disney TV villains are set on taking over the world. You are the only agent with the power to foil their evil schemes. With a portable device to guide the way and send you messages from headquarters, you must follow the leads and explore the interactive elements in each country to complete your mission. Originally you were helping out Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable, guided by Wayne through a Kimunicator. There were a variety of villains bent on world domination to defeat, the most common being Dr. Drakken.
Epcot — “Disney’s Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure” brings families together to become secret agents, teaming up with Disney Channel’s Kim Possible and friends to save the world from various comical villains and their mad inventions. The fun experience takes place at Epcot in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Now, you are assisting Perry the Platypus, aka Agent P. Major Monogram and Carl of O.W.C.A (Organization Without a Cool Acronym) guide you through a F.O.N.E (Field Operative Notification Equipment).
Channeling her inner secret agent, a young Epcot guest uses a F.O.N.E. — Field Operative Notifications Equipment — to reveal Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s secret hideaway in the Germany pavilion. Recruited by Agent P to thwart the mad scientist’s evil schemes, guests playing Disney Phineas & Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure, a new interactive experience, follow clues throughout seven countries in World Showcase on a mission to defeat Agent P’s nemesis. Epcot is located at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (David Roark, photographer)
Dr. Doofenshmirtz has moved beyond his usual goal of conquering the tri–state area and is constructing -inators internationally.
Now to the question: which is better? To be perfectly honest, they are both very similar. The concept is the same and the interactive effects are just themed for a new adventure. No matter the adventure, you run the risk of startling an innocent bystander with a little Disney magic, as my brother and I found out when we activated a special effect during an adventure in Germany. Imagine the look of surprise on the face of the man next to us as the beer steins he was examining broke out in song! Whether you preferred the original or are excited about the update, both are great ways to explore World Showcase and involve people of all ages. Personal preference more depends on which characters you like best. Enjoy!
